Lost phone number

I was on my moms plan. I would pay her monthly. It was just how we did things. She unexpectedly passed away and her husband cut my line because I disagreed with how he was handling my moms belongings.  Is there any way to get my number back? I have had that number for years.

I'm sorry for your loss and for the stress of your situation.

If he has already disconnected the line, no, there is no way to recover a number once the line has been disconnected.

If he has not, then you need his cooperation to transfer billing responsibility for that line from him to you.

Is there a way to get my voicemails I had saved that were from my mom?  Since there is no service it wont allow me to listen to them.

If the line has been disconnected, then the mailbox itself has likely been deleted; no messages saved in it will be available.  If your phone downloaded the messages into an application on your phone, then they should still be there on the phone.

The AT&T Representative deactivated the wrong phone # associated to my cell phone today while deactivating other unnecessary lines that I had requested her to.  So she got one of the lines wrong.  I now have no service on my phone which is the main phone on the account and I desperately want my phone number as it has been with me and my business for 30 years!!!

This is primarily a customer populated community.   We can't help you, please contact AT&T directly. You're probably going to have to go to an AT&T store to sort this out because they'll have to make a SIM card.
